Alexander Zverev may be sporting a poker face while playing on court, but it seems he has a good sense of humour too.

The German tennis star was involved in a hilarious exchange with a journalist during a post-match press conference.

Following his 2-6 7-5 4-6 6-1 6-2 win over Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic in the second round of Roland Garros, Zverev was amused by the Yorkshire accent. So much so, that he vowed to come over and play a tournament there in the future.

“Where you from buddy?” Zverev replied to the question.

“Yorkshire,” the journalist said in his manly tone.

“Nice. If they ever make a tournament there I’m coming just because of that accent.”

“Love it. I didn’t understand a word you’re saying.”

“You clearly enjoy your tennis?”

“Not as much as your accent buddy. I love that (chuckles).”

“I will come to all your press conferences now.”

“I love that.”

“If you get to the final we’ll make sure I can ask a question. Because I get edged out.”

“I’ll definitely make sure if I get to the final you’re asking multiple questions.”

Meanwhile, Zverev, the No. 2 seed, will lock horns with 26th seed Damir Dzumhur for a place in the round of 16 on Friday.
